A bit like the Volkswagen emissions scandal as how many more are getting up to crooked deeds..

As it's about labelling, it could be something as simple as them forgetting to change the year from 2017 to 2018.

But I doubt we'll ever find out.

Quote from ITV News:


So far, officials have only revealed that their enquiries concern 'use-by' dates.

Breaches of rules at Russell Hume were so serious and widespread, they triggered a mass recall of meat supplied to a string of big-name caterers.

But we understand there are also concerns about whether labels misled customers about the meat's country of origin.

Speaking to us anonymously, a former Russell Hume worker has made his accusations against the company public for the first time.



"Imported beef is a third less in price than British beef so there's an opportunity to make 30% more profit," he told ITV News.

"Its what the industry does and has been doing for a long time. Falsifying traceability of imported beef and making it into UK beef and then serving it to some of the biggest companies in the country."

The big companies that used Russell Hume meat have now switched supplier.

Many had ordered British beef. That's what they thought they'd got - and that's how they described it on their menus.
So they were passing off cheap foreign beef as British. Thank the good lord for whistleblowers.

Hopefully the spotlight will be shone on other suppliers if the practice is as widespread as claimed.
